Labor education for college students in the new era aims to cultivate future workers who can practice hard work, honest work and creative work. At present, colleges and universities have made a series of achievements in the implementation of labor education for college students in the new era, but there is still room for further improvement. At present, the problems existing in the labor education of college students in Chinese higher vocational colleges involve three aspects: schools, teachers and students, which are mainly reflected in the lack of curriculum setting and environmental guarantee for implementing labor education in some schools. Secondly, some teachers lack of labor education concepts and teaching methods synchronized with The Times. Third, at present, most college students have negative labor values, and they have low labor emotion and attitude. In order to better improve the teaching quality of the current labor education curriculum in higher vocational colleges, the school should first establish a comprehensive and three-dimensional labor education system to ensure the systematization and integrity of the current labor education curriculum view in higher vocational colleges. Second, teachers can improve the form of labor education through flexibility, and explore the labor education method combining reality and problem orientation. Finally, the school actively creates labor situations to let students experience different labor roles and help students establish correct labor values.
